As South Korea just spent 600 million euros on a brand new winter resort, we need only travel one hour North of the new site to find the previous Alps Resort, brutally abandoned 12 years ago. An eerie place that lets one wonder about the fleeting legacy of the Olympic games.

It is 3.30 pm on the Lofoten islands. The sun has set almost an hour ago and the moon rising between two snow mountains reflects its bright light onto the icy beach of Flakstad.
Even though we are hundreds of kilometers North of the Arctic Circle , the most popular activity here is surfing . The Lofoten islands are famous worldwide for their scenic fishing villages surrounded by snow mountains, icy bays and northern lights. Although it is cod fishing that has traditionally played the dominant role in the islands’ history a local surfing scene has emerged in the little bay of Unstad, cut off from the rest of the island by mountains. Nowadays, what used to be the village school has become a surf camp welcoming adventurers and professional surfers from all around the world coming to defy the best waves of the Arctic.
I traveled to the Lofoten in the winter of 2017 to work on this series. Please contact me at email@example.com or trough my agency directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
